Swords are easy to find, Armour comes in all kinds of different forms, and with Smithing it is possible to build yourself fantastic weapons and armour, as well as increasing damage. Perception and Artful Dodger mean it's easy to get through combat by never missing and always dodging, as well as getting lots of criticals with Assassination.
Early in the game, upgrade your Smithing to at least 4 and begin upgrading Sword after your smiting is at 4 or 5. As you progress, upgrade Sword, Master of Arms, and Assassination the most. When you come across a Anvil of Krong, wait until you have a very powerful weapon or armour you have crafted (or a powerful artefact) and always upgrade that item. Mana restrictions on armour will not be a problem- you don't need mana. By the time you fight Lord Dredmor, you should have an unstoppable sword, great armour,and should be dealing very heavy hits with other skills.
